Experience
Juggling
(Main | May.2002 - Jan.31.2016)


This juggling virtuoso manipulates bowling pins, soccer balls, hats and ping-pong balls with his hands, feet, head and even his mouth.

Of course. What better metaphor for the ephemeral quality of flight? Using ping-pong balls, volleyballs, and pins, the juggler does his best to defy the law of gravity. But as Icarus knows, what goes up...

A young man bursts onto the stage to perform a unique, high-energy solo juggling/ manipulation number. The juggler is dressed in a "jester" costume (the same costume worn by the porters in Icarian Games, but with a blue and fluorescent green/yellow colour scheme). The music for the act is up tempo with a South American/Brazilian influence. The juggler begins with regular juggling pins, then switches to manipulation and juggling of soccer balls. He then juggles ping-pong balls with his mouth, spitting them and catching them in rapid succession. As a finale he takes straw hats worn by the Water Meteor boys (who act as characters/assistants during the act) and throws four of them like Frisbees, but so that they return to him like boomerangs. He continues to juggle the hats making, a dramatic dive to catch the last one. This is definitely a high-calibre act and a real crowd pleaser...
